On Wednesday, April 27, The Pour House in Charleston, South Carolina will host Jam for Japan, a benefit concert and silent auction featuring local bands with all proceeds going directly to The American Red Cross*.
The night will be headlined by local band Slanguage with Elise Testone. Tyler Boone, and Bill Jenkins and The Regrettables will be opening.
The event is sponsored by The Music Initiative, an online, monthly music magazine based in South Carolina. The magazine focuses on the working musician as well as those already established artists yet to receive mainstream attention.
The Music Initiative takes a unique approach to the traditional music magazine, incorporating a variety of mediums into its publication through the use of embedded links. Each publication includes video and sound, in addition to traditional text and photography.
“Jam for Japan is an opportunity for people in the arts to come together and contribute their talents to a great cause,” says Kara Klein, Managing Editor of The Music Initiative and co-coordinator of Jam for Japan. “Many people in Charleston are directly related to the disaster in Japan in some shape or form, and J4J is an outlet to unite, raise awareness and give back. Every little contribution makes a huge difference.”
Tickets for Jam for Japan are $10 at the door and 100% of funds raised will go directly to the American Red Cross. The Pour House is located at 1977 Maybank Highway, Charleston, SC 29412. Doors open at 8pm.
